    Evaluation of pesticides residues for estimation of maximum residue levels and calculation of dietary intake - Training manual 2011

    This pesticide residue training manual was developed to introduce trainees to the procedures and practices of residue evaluation in JMPR. It was first prepared for a training workshop in Budapest in November 2010. It has now been edited and compiled into a single document. The first part (Chapters 1 to 13) covers the relevant topics. They are illustrated by many examples taken from JMPR Reports and Evaluations. The Exercises provide the introduction and background suitable for practi cal exercises by small teams at a training workshop. The Presentations are PowerPoint versions of lecture topics for the training workshop. Because pesticide evaluation has developed its own terminology where many acronyms and abbreviations have their own special meaning, at the end of each chapter is a list of those used in the chapter as an encouragement for workshop trainees to become familiar with them.

    Submission and evaluation of pesticide residues data for the estimation of maximum residue levels in food and feed 2015
    The FAO Manual on the submission and evaluation of pesticide residues data for the estimation of maximum residue levels in food and feed contains general principle of the work undertaken by JMPR, is the continuous evaluation of new scientific developments and guidance documents. The Manual gives the historical background of the operation of the JMPR and describes the purpose of the work, the procedures involved in selection of compounds, the data requirements for estimating maximum residue l evels and the principles followed in the evaluation of experimental results and information provided. The Manual is also used by countries as a guidance document in residue evaluation and MRL setting. This 3rd edition of the FAO Manual incorporates the current working principles applied by the FAO Panel for evaluation of pesticide residues to recommend maximum residue levels, STMR and HR values and to assess the dietary exposure of consumers. In addition to the general updating of the text, t he third edition contains new methodologies /principles developed in recent 5 years.

    Pesticide residues in food 2004 - Report 2004

    The annual Joint Meeting of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues in Food and the Environment and WHO Core Assessment Group on Pesticide Residues was held in Rome, Italy, from 20 to 29 September 2004. The FAO Panel of Experts had met in Preparatory Sessions from 15 to 19 September. The meeting was held in pursuance of recommendations made by previous meetings and accepted by the governing bodies of FAO and WHO that studies should be undertaken jointly by experts to evaluate possible haz ards to humans arising from the occurrence of pesticide residues in foods. During the meeting the FAO Panel of Experts was responsible for reviewing pesticide use patterns (good agricultural practices), data on the chemistry and composition of the pesticides and methods of analysis for pesticide residues and for estimating the maximum residue levels that might occur as a result of the use of the pesticides according to good agricultural practices. The WHO Core Assessment Group was responsible fo r reviewing toxicological and related data and for estimating, where possible, acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) of the pesticides for humans. This report contains information on ADIs, maximum residue levels and general principles for the evaluation of pesticides. The recommendations of the joint meeting, including further research and information, are proposed for use by Member Governments of the respective agencies and other interested parties.
